I really loved Wonders of Turkey. It was quite fully packed over 10 days. There was a lot of traveling which I enjoy, and we saw so much. As I’ve said, the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia was something I had always dreamed of seeing for myself – we’ve all seen the iconic pictures of the hot air balloons rising above the chimneys. It’s a really special and spectacular place, all naturally formed from volcanic eruptions from millions of years ago.
Throughout the tour our guide was really informative. There was a lot of architectural detail and history, which I find really interesting. So, it was all quite insightful.
Another highlight was Ephesus, which is huge archeological site and one of Turkey’s most significant ancient cities. This was a really interesting site to visit. There is a place called the Library of Celsus which has been carefully reconstructed. It’s huge and a very impressive sight, showing you just how grandiose the city was in its heyday.
We stayed in the Alfina Cave Hotel, which I couldn’t believe, I was so excited! It was all rocks and stones and so well put together. The bedroom, the bathroom, I just kept thinking ‘this is a cave!’ It was really cool and definitely a unique experience.
